Research description

Our passion is integrating new technological innovations into biomedical imaging that can help to improve our understanding of metabolic (especially oxygen related) processes in disease. We hope to use these findings to improve cancer patient survival, by finding routes to overcome drug resistance and eventually enabling earlier cancer detection. The cancer models we use range from single cells in petri dishes to intact living systems. Our imaging techniques use excitation wavelengths that span the electromagnetic spectrum, with a current focus on the near-infrared.
